Affecting Sound

For my sound effects assignment, I wanted to create an alien story.

The process was actually really difficult for me. I had found some cool sound effects online that I wanted to use but I could not figure out how to use them within Audacity. I wanted to add the effects to the effects that are already in Audacity but it kept opening up a separate editing page.

I decided to play around with Audacity’s effects and see what I could do. I had a lot of fun going through all of the different sounds and making them into my own specialized effects. After a bit of struggling, I figured out how to move around the clips and make them play after each other instead of during the others. I mainly used sounds within the Generate tab because they allowed for more editing. While I do think that I can get a handle on how to use Audacity, I wish it would be easier to navigate.
